As a kid of 90’s origin, I’ve grown up with Japanese animation for quite some time. From the typical Toonami programming my childish brain lived on, to the cultural evolution it took when going into Miyazaki’s more mature titles, anime shaped me into one heck of a person. Though other titles were more influential to my personal story than others, part of that growth involved a title called Ghost in the Shell.
Filled with controversy since the moment it was announced, the Dreamworks/Paramount Pictures co-produced movie, Ghost in the Shell, seems to be losing fans rather than gaining any. But with the release of the first ever footage from the March 2017 release – showing Scarlett Johansson as “The Major” in all her cyborg glory – these clips might cool your rage a bit rather than adding more fuel to the fandom fire.
Here at Simulcast Corner, the world of Anime has sprung into overdrive with tons of news straight out of Nippon. From new seasons of your favorite shows, to clues of reboots for classic franchises, we’ve got a lot to cover. So without further ado, let’s get started!
As mentioned last week with a look into the new live action Lupin The Third movie, anime to big screen adaptations have been happening like crazy this past year. Now another one of my favorite titles can be added to the mix, with the upcoming Princess Jellyfish movie, set to be released December 2014 (in Japan, at least.)
